Tinfoil Chef: Rednek K-so-dee-ahs!
Welcome to "Tinfoil Chef " where I'd like to feature healthy recipes for square meals on meager pockets. Today's recipe is brought to us by Practical Chick - a simple, easy and cheesy recipe for Quesadillas.


This is so simple... Ready?

Here's your grocery list...and yes, you can write it using lipstick and paper towel - after all...this is my quick, rednek version:

- Boneless, skinless chicken breast
- Cheddar cheese soup
- Taco sauce
- 10 flour tortillas
- Shredded cheddar

When you get home, put your chicken in a pot that you melted some butter in (or a skillet depending on how much you are making). Add what ever seasonings you want. Cook the chicken until it is done and chop it up. Add the soup (do not dilute it) and about half a cup (less if you want) of taco sauce. Mix it all up. Oh yeah, by now this should not be on hot stove.

Heat your oven to 350 and get your cookie sheet out...a cake pan works too. Warm up your tortillas by wrapping them in paper towel and microwaving them for a few seconds.

Add some of the chicken and cheese soup mix to a tortilla, add cheese, fold in half, and seal with a little water. Put it on the cookie sheet. Repeat until your cookie sheet is full. Bake them until the cheese is melted.

There you go. Rednek K-so-dee-ahs!


I tried this recipe the other evening and my only addition was to jazz 'em up by tossing some diced fresh tomato on top of the mixture before folding and baking them. Serving them with a dollop of sour cream really did the trick and we all loved them and will be sure to make this quick dish again. Yields 10 - 2 per serving. (5)

Total Cost: $5.97 approximately $1.19 cents per person (tomato and sour cream not included)
Prep Time: 20 minutes for stovetop -10 minutes oven/plate prep.
Dishes in Sink: Skillet, cookie sheet, spatula, wooden spoon, knife, spoon. Use Paper Plates!

    These sound pretty good -- I'll have to check the calorie/fat count on that cheese soup and see if this is feasible around HERE! Thanks!
